68. On document level: Requested date Odoo offers the possibility to indicate a requested date by the client straight on the sale order, under the tab Other information . If this date is earlier than the theoretically computed date, Odoo will automatically display a warning. Example As an example, you may sell a car today (January 1st), that is purchased on order, and you promise to deliver your customer within 20 days (January 20). In such a scenario, the scheduler may trigger the following events, based on your configuration: January 19: actual scheduled delivery (1 day of Sales Safety days) January 18: receive the product from your supplier (1 day of Purchase days) January 10: deadline to order at your supplier (9 days of supplier delivery lead time) January 8: trigger a purchase request to your purchase team, since the team needs on average 2 days to find the right supplier and order.
54. How to setup a minimum stock rule? For some items you hold in stock, it might be useful to have rules making sure you never run out of stocks (for example, products with a high demand, or large items requiring a lot of storage space meaning they're harder to stock). Odoo allows you to set up rules so that an automatic replenishment for those items is made, based on minimum stocks available. When should I use Reordering Rules? Reordering Rules work best for items that have a high demand and high flow. It will relieve you from a lot of work to focus on the rest of your activities knowing that stocks will always be right. It can also be used when you have limited storage space and you need to keep large items in stock. In this case, you can keep as little as 1 item in stock, and have a new one ordered as a stock replenishment as soon as the item in stock is sold. When should I avoid Reordering Rules? If you are offering a new product and don't know yet how fast it will go, you should handle stocks yourself first, and setup reordering rules only a few months into the sale to have better forecasts of the demand. If you sell items that have a limited lifetime, such as fashion items, technology items, or products working together with a system that is meant to evolve, you have to be very well informed on when to stop automated replenishments, in order to avoid having to sell these items at a price that will not allow you to break even. Example My company sells modern furniture. We sell a set of table and chairs that are available in 4 seatings and 6 seatings. To keep things simple, we stock tables and chairs separately, but sell them all together to our clients as a kit. In order to make sure we can always deliver a complete set of table and chairs, I setup a Reordering Rule for the chairs to make sure I always have at least 10 chairs in stock, but no more than 20. This way, I can sell up to 5 sets of table at once while keeping my stock low enough not to eat up all my storage space. The last table I sold was a 4 seatings, and there were 12 chairs left in my stock. Because the stock in chairs is now only 8 chairs, Odoo will automatically order 12 new chairs to fill up my stock to the maximum amount.
16. By adding manually We can of course also add vendors and vendors information manually. On the same page than previously, simply click on Edit and click the Add an item button. When adding a new Vendor you are also able to add extra information such as the vendor product name or code, the validity of the price and the eventual minimum quantity required. These informations can be added and modified for existing vendors by simply clicking on the vendors line.
17. How to import supplier pricelists? Introduction Big companies use to import supplier pricelists day to day. Indeed, prices are always changing and you need to get price up to date to deal with a high number of products. To manage supplier prices on product form, read this document ( How to set several suppliers on a product? ). Here we will show you how to import customer prices. Required conĞguration In purchase settings, you have 2 options: Manage vendor price on the product form Allow using and importing vendor pricelists Here we are selecting: Allow using and importing vendor pricelists
53. How to use drop-shipping? Create the sale order and select the route as Dropshipping on the concerned order lines. Once the order has been confirmed, no move will be created from your stock. The goods will be delivered directly from your vendor to your customer. Note In order to be able to invoice the delivery, you must set the invoice policy of your product on Ordered quantities .
44. Note On the contrary to the pivot table, a graph can only be computed with one dependent and one independent measure. Customize reports You can easily customize your purchase reports depending on your needs. To do so, use the Advanced search view located in the right hand side of your screen, by clicking on the magnifying glass icon at the end of the search bar button. This function allows you to highlight only selected data on your report. The filters option is very useful in order to display some categories of datas, while the Group by option improves the readability of your reports. Note that you can filter and group by any existing field, making your customization very flexible and powerful.
30. While the invoice is in draft state, you can make any modifications you need (i.e. remove or add product lines, modify quantities, and change prices). Note Your vendor may send you several bills for the same purchase order if: 1 . Your vendor is in back-order and is sending you invoices as they ship the products. 2 . Your vendor is sending you a partial bill or asking for a deposit. Every time you record a new vendor bill, Odoo will automatically populate the product quantities based on what has been received from the vendor. If this value is showing a zero, this means that you have not yet received this product and simply serves as a reminder that the product is not in hand and you may need to inquire further into this. At any point in time, before you validate the vendor bill, you may override this zero quantity. Vendor Bill Matching What to do if your vendor bill does not match what you received If the bill you receive from the vendor has different quantities than what Odoo automatically populates as quantities, this could be due to several reasons: The vendor is incorrectly charging you for products and/or services that you have not ordered. The vendor is billing you for products that you might not have received yet, as the invoicing control may be based on ordered or received quantities. Or the vendor did not bill you for previously purchased products. In these instances it is recommended that you verify that the bill, and any associated purchase order to the vendor, are accurate and that you understand what you have ordered and what you have already received. If you are unable to find a purchase order related to a vendor bill, this could be due to one of a few reasons: The vendor has already invoiced you for this purchase order, therefore it is not going to appear anywhere in the selection. Someone in the company forgot to record a purchase order for this vendor. Or the vendor is charging you for something you did not order.
40. How to setup two levels of approval for purchase orders? Two level approval setup Double validation on purchases forces a validation when the purchased amount exceeds a certain limit. Install Purchase Management module and then go to General Settings to configure the company data. Set here the amount limit for second approval and set approval from manager side. Process Logged as a purchase user, create a purchase order for more than the amount set above, and confirm it. The purchase order is set in a state To Approve

29. Managing Vendor Bills When you receive a Vendor Bill for a previous purchase, be sure to record it in the Purchases application under the Control Menu . You need to create a new vendor bill even if you already registered a purchase order. The first thing you will need to do upon creating a Vendor Bill is to select the appropriate Vendor as this will also pull up any associated accounting or pricelist information. From there, you can choose to specify any one or multiple purchase orders to populate the vendor bill with. When you select a purchase order from the list, Odoo will pull any uninvoiced products associated to that purchase order and automatically populate that information below. If you are having a hard time finding the appropriate vendor bill, you may search through the list by inputting the vendor reference number or your internal purchase order number.
6. Go back to the PO. In the PO, a Shipment tab and an Invoice tab have appeared. Click on Receive Products , then in the new page, click on Validate .

8. Example My company builds wooden furniture. For the new series of table we are designing, we need some screws, metal frames and rubber protections. I create a Request for Quotation in Odoo with those products to my usual supplier, and send it by email. He answers back with an offer. However, I am not convinced by the offer, and I want to see if anyone can give a better one. I decide to push competition a bit and set up a Purchase Tender, that Odoo will send to a list of suppliers I specified. Out of the 8 offers I receive, one gets my attention and I decide to go ahead with that one. I confirm the order to the supplier by creating a Purchase Order from the PT, and Odoo automatically asks delivery of the items to the supplier.

64. How are the order date and scheduled dates computed? Scheduled dates are computed in order to be able to plan deliveries, receptions and so on. Depending on the habits of your company, Odoo automatically generates scheduled dates via the scheduler. The Odoo scheduler computes everything per line, whether it's a manufacturing order, a delivery order, a sale order, etc. The dates that are computed are dependent on the different leads times configured in Odoo. ConĞguring lead times Configuring lead times is an essential move in order to compute scheduled dates. Lead times are the delays (in term of delivery, manufacturing, ...) promised to your different partners and/or clients. Configuration of the different lead times are made as follows: On a product level Supplier lead time: The supplier lead time is the time needed for the supplier to deliver your purchased product. To configure the Supplier lead time select a product (from the Purchase module, go to Purchase ‣ Product ), and go in the Inventory tab. You will have to add a Vendor to your product in order to select a supplier lead time.
69. How to setup a multi-company sale/purchase ğow? Overview Odoo is an outstanding solution to help small companies growing their business. But it also perfectly meets the needs of multinational companies.The inter-company feature helps you to buy and/or sell products and services between different branches within your conglomerate. 1 . Purchase orders and sales orders can be related. If a company within your group creates a purchase or a sales order, the corresponding document is automatically created for your company.

If you plan to receive the remaining product in the future, select Create Backorder . Odoo will create a new documents for the awaiting products. If you choose No Backorder , the order is considered as fulfilled. See also How to control supplier bills? How to cancel a purchase order?
42. How to analyze the performance of my vendors? If your company regularly buys products from several suppliers, it would be useful to get statistics on your purchases. There are several reasons to track and analyze your vendor's performance : You can see how dependant from a supplier your company is; you can negotiate discounts on prices; You can check the average delivery time per supplier; Etc. For example, an IT products reseller that issues dozens of purchase orders to several suppliers each week may want to measure for each product the total price paid for each vendor and the delivery delay. The insights gathered by the company will help it to better analyze, forecast and plan their future orders. ConĞguration Install the Purchase Management module From the Apps menu, search and install the Purchase Management module. Issue some purchase orders Of course, in order to analyze your vendors' performance, you need to issue some Request For Quotations (RfQ) and confirm some Purchase Orders . If you want to know how to generate a purchase order, please read the documentation From purchase order to invoice and receptions .
67. Tip Note that you can in this menu configure a default Manufacturing lead time. Purchase days Purchase days response to the same logic than sales security days. They are margins of error for vendor lead times. When the system generates purchase orders for procuring products, they will be scheduled in order to cope with unexpected vendor delays. Purchase lead time can be found in the same menu as the sales safety days (see screenshot above). On route level The internal transfers due to the movement of stocks can also influence the computed date. The delays due to internal transfers can be specified in the Inventory module when creating a new push rule for a new route. Note Read the documentation What is a push rule? to learn more.
20. Import this document in Odoo. Click on Import in the list view and upload your document. You can validate and check error. Once the system tells you everything is ok, you can import the list. After the import, the Vendors section in Inventory tab of the product form is filled in. Update the vendor pricelist When the pricelist of your suppliers change, it is necessary to update existing prices. Follow the procedure of the first scenario in order to export existing data from Purchases ‣ Vendor Pricelist . Select everything, and export from the Action menu. Change price, end date, add a line, change a supplier, ... and then reimport in Odoo. Thanks to the ID, the list will be updated. Either the id is recognized and the line is updated or the ID is not known by Purchase >
5. Go back to the PO. In the PO, a Shipment and an Invoice button have appeared. Your products are now ready for picking and storage, and the invoice is marked as paid. Upfront payment From the Purchase Order page, open the Invoices tab, then click on Create . In the next page, click on Validate . The invoice is now registered in the system. Click on Register Payment , insert the detail of the payment, and click on Validate .
11. Create a new unit of measure. In this case our category will be called Inter-Category-Computation . The next step is to create the Rolls and Square meter units of measure and to link them to the new category. To do so, go into your purchase module select ‣ ‣ Create two new units: The Roll unit who is part of the Inter-Category-Computation category and is the Reference Unit type (see picture below). The Reference Unit type is the measure set as a reference within the category. Meaning that other measures will be converted depending on this measure (ex: 1 roll = 10 square meters, 2 rolls = 20 square meters, etc.). Configuration > Products > Units of Measure .
57. How to trigger the purchase of products based on sales? Overview When you work in just-in-time, you don't manage stock so you directly order the product you need from your vendor. The usual flow is: 1 . Create a sale order 2 . Purchase the product 3 . Receive and pay the bill 4 . Deliver your product 5 . Invoice your customer Product conĞguration In the purchases application, open the Purchase menu and click on Products . Open the product on which you want to do your purchases based on sales. Next to Routes, tick Buy and Make to order as a procurement method. When you are generating sales order, Odoo will automatically reorder the same quantity through procurement. Don't forget to set a vendor otherwise the rule won't be triggered. You can also configure minimum stock rules that will trigger the purchase orders. Note To know how to configure a minimum stock rule, please read the document How to setup a minimum stock rule?
7. Request for Quotation, Purchase Tender or Purchase Order? Although they are intimately related, Requests for Quotation, Purchase Tenders and Purchase Orders are not the same. A Request for Quotation (RfQ) is used when you plan to purchase some products and you would like to receive a quote for those products. In Odoo, the Request for Quotation is used to send your list of desired products to your supplier. Once your supplier has answered your request, you can choose to go ahead with the offer and purchase or to turn down the offer. A Purchase Tender (PT), also known as Call for Bids, is used to drive competition between several suppliers in order to get the best offer for a list of products. In comparison to the RfQ, a Purchase Tender is sent to multiple suppliers, stating each are competing with one another, and that the best offer will win. The main interest is that it usually leads to better offers. The Purchase Order (PO) is the actual order that you place to the supplier that you chose, either through a RfQ, a Purchase Tender, or simply when you already know which supplier to order from. When to use? A RfQ is interesting when you have never purchased the products with that supplier before and therefore don't know their price. It is also useful if you want to challenge your suppliers once you have a well-established relationship with them. You can also use it to assess the cost of a project and see if it makes it feasible. A Purchase Tender is used for public offers that require an open offering from several suppliers. It is also useful when you need to make a one-off order for a product and you would like to get the best offer, no matter which supplier it is. It may be used when your supplier has not been up to your standards and you would like to either push them to deliver a better service, or find a replacement in their competitors. When not to use? RfQ s become unnecessary once you have established your favorite supplier for each item, and will only increase the delay in the delivery of your items. In that case, the process will be simpler by starting straight from a Purchase Order. Purchase Tenders are a long and tedious process that will likely take more than several weeks in the best cases. If you need a quick delivery, this is not the way to go. Also, if you have a well-established relationship with one supplier, think twice before you initiate a PT with them as it might tear the relationship and finally lead to less interesting deals.
48. In the Products section, click on Add an item . Select the product in the Product list, then insert Quantity . You can add as many products as you wish. Click on Save , then on Confirm Call . Two new RFQs/Bids and Request a Quotation tabs have appeared on the right side of the window. Click on Request a Quotation and type in the names of the suppliers you wish to include in the PT, then click on Create Request for Quotation . A list of suppliers has appeared in the Requests for Quotation section.
65. Tip It is possible to add more than one vendor per product and thus different delivery lead times depending on the vendor. Once a vendor is selected, click on it to open its form and indicate its delivery lead time. Note In this case security days have no influence, the scheduled delivery days will be equal to: Date of the purchase order + Delivery Lead Time. Customer lead time The customer lead time is the time needed to get your product from your store/warehouse to your customer. It can be configured for any product. Simply select a product (from the Sales module, go to ‣ Product ), and go into the Sales tab to indicate your customer lead time. Sales >
15. By issuing a Ğrst Purchase Order to new vendor When issuing a purchase order for the first time to a vendor, he will automatically be linked to the product by Odoo. For our example let's say that we issue a first purchase order to Bob&Jerry's for 5 t-shirts at 12.35 euros / piece . First create your purchase order with the correct product and supplier (see picture below, or the documentation page How to create a Request for Quotation? for more information) When we save and validate the purchase order the vendor will automatically be added to the product's vendors list. To check this enter the purchase module, select ‣ Products and select our T-shirt product. By opening the Inventory tab we notice that our vendor and its price has automatically been added. Purchase > Note that every first time the product is purchased from a new vendor, Odoo will automatically link the contact and price with the product.
66. On the company level On company level, it is possible to parameter security days in order to cope with eventual delays and to be sure to meet your engagements. The idea is to subtract backup days from the computed scheduled date in case of delays. Sales Safety days Sales Safety days are back-up days to ensure you will be able to deliver your clients engagements on time. They are margins of errors for delivery lead times. Security days are the same logic as the early wristwatch, in order to arrive on time. The idea is to subtract the numbers of security days from the calculation and thus to compute a scheduled date earlier than the one you promised to your client. That way you are sure to be able to keep your commitment. To set up your security dates, go to the app ‣ General settings , and click on Configure your company data . Settings > Go the Configuration tab to indicate the number of safety days

In Odoo, the Request for Quotation is used to send your list of desired products to your supplier. Once your supplier has answered your request, you can choose to go ahead with the offer and purchase or to turn down the offer.

46. How to manage multiple offers from suppliers with purchase tenders? A Purchase Tender (PT), also known as Call for Bids, is used to drive competition between several suppliers in order to get the best offer for a list of products. In comparison to the RfQ, a Purchase Tender is sent to multiple suppliers, stating each are competing with one another, and that the best offer will win. The main interest is that it usually leads to better offers. For more information on best uses, please read the chapter Request for Quotation, Purchase Tender or Purchase Order? ConĞguration Activating the Purchase Tender function By default, the Purchase Tender is not activated. To be able to use PTs, you must first activate the option. In the Purchases module, open the Configuration menu and click on Settings. In the Purchase Order section, locate the Calls for Tenders and tick the box Allow using call for tenders...

From the Inventory dashboard, you should see a button X To Receive , on the receipt box of the related warehouse. Click on this button and you access a list of all awaiting orders for this warehouse. If you have a lot of awaiting orders, you can use the filter bar to search on the Vendor (also called Partner in Odoo), the product or the source document, which is the reference of your purchase order. You can open the document that matches with the received delivery order and process all the lines within it.
49. To send the RfQs to your suppliers, click on the green V icon. You can also review the RfQ before sending them by clicking on them. When you receive offers, click on the RFQs/Bids tab.

Register good received and cancel backorder The first thing to do will be to register the goods received and to cancel the arrival of the third iPad Mini that is still supposed to be shipped. From the PO, click on Receive products and, on the iPad Mini order line , manually change the received quantities under the Column Done . Note To learn more, see How to control product received? (entirely & partially) When clicking on Validate , Odoo will warn you that you have processed less products than the initial demand (2 instead of 3 in our case) and will ask you the permission to create a backorder.
33. When creating the product, the Product Type field is important: Stockable & Consumable : products need to be received in the inventory. Services & Digital Products (only when the eCommerce app is installed): there is no control about what you receive or not. Tip It's always good to create a Miscellaneous product for all the products you purchased rarely and for which you don't want to manage the stocks or have purchase/sale statistics. If you create such a product, we recommend to set his product type field as Service . Control products receptions Purchase products From the purchase application, create a purchase order with a few products. If the vendor sent you a sale order or a quotation, put its reference in the Vendor Reference field. This will allow you to easily do the matching with the delivery order later on (as the delivery order will probably include the Vendor Reference of his sale order).
4. Select your product from the list and add a description if necessary. The Scheduled Date menu corresponds to the expected delivery date. Type in the quantity which you wish to purchase, then click on Save and on Confirm Order .

In the products general information you have the Tip It is possible to create your own category and unit of measure if it is not standard in Odoo (see next chapter).

We thus first have to create a shared Measure Category where both units have a conversion relationship. To do so, go into your sales module select ‣ ‣ Unit of Measure . Create a new unit of Measure Category by selecting the dropdown list and clicking on create and edit (see Configuration > Products > picture below).
